Holy shit these comments are ridiculous its not gonna make one fucking difference who the hell is going to enforce it? When was the last time you saw a cop at any Seattle park other than Westlake? This is just wasted legislation and time, focus on real issues, like I don't know, the crack dealers downtown that keep shooting each other? Maybe the increase in hate crimes?

Spuds FTW! Also Beacon Hill Shell should be avoided at all costs unless you are buying a tall boy to go with your gizzards on your way to pick up some stones.

@46 you can have it both ways, I love bikes and love to commute when the weather is cooperates but I also love my car and drive when I don't feel like slogging it through soup. Your statement only furthers the divide between the two camps.

@42 Totally hear you, and if you got the where with all to keep your head on your shoulders, have great bike handling skills and are cognoscente of the traffic around you by all means commute on the busier streets. All I'm saying though is you never hear about major bike accidents/fatalities on the inter urban trail or residential roads, yes people get doored and bumped but they are not dying.

visibility not viability

@36 residential might not be a fully safe alternative but it is 100% better than trying to run the gauntlet of a more busy street. In a perfect world yes bike lanes on arterial would be great if we all commuted in 65 degree weather, but when you see people trying to commute at 7 in the morning in February on Aurora it makes you wonder, I do not think this is safe at all. No matter how much viability you have on your bike you are still sharing that road with someone that just rolled out of bed and is most likely multi tasking in their car. I would much rather take the residential option in times like this. At least on the residential streets the car speeds are slower and limited in comparison to MLK or Aurora.

Also anti bike commenters you guys sound like fourth grade tools, head over to the Seattle Times with those comments. Your not adding anything to this discussion and just sounds like a bunch bitter fucks that cant drive. "Oh no a cyclist slowed me down on my way to work and it totally took like two minutes longer" B O O H O O we live in a city, get over yourselves and share the road.

Chinanski - Right on, I am an avid cyclist/road racer and am fortunate enough that my commute takes me east to Totem Lake away from the city but it always baffles me when I see cyclist trying to commute on what should be car only streets (Aurora/Lake City Way/MLK/Raineer) all of these road do have more bike friendly options a block in any given direction. I dont think that us cyclist have the right to demand that every thoroughfare should have a bike track. Its up to us as commuters to also have the understanding that if we try to commute on Aurora, we have a waaay higher chance of getting hit then if we go one or two blocks up.
